LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18 (UPI) — Kim Kardashian is taking “some much needed time off” from the spotlight, according to her assistant.

The 35-year-old reality star’s personal assistant, Stephanie Sheppard, aka Steph Shep, updated fans on Kardashian’s website Monday after the mom-of-two was robbed at gunpoint Oct. 2 in Paris.

“So you may have noticed we haven’t updated the app in a couple weeks. Keeks is taking some much needed time off,” Sheppard wrote.

“But not to worry. We’ve called upon Kim’s closest friends, fam & yours truly to serve up some exclusives. Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers! Thank you so much for your support for my girl,” she added.

Kardashian was at her hotel in Paris when two men gained access to her room and stole her cell phone and millions of dollars worth of jewelry. Her sister Khloe Kardashian admitted last week that the star is “not doing that well.”

“It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together,” Khloe said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “We do appreciate all your guys’ love and support. It will take time.”

“I think it’s just a wake-up call to make a lot of life adjustments,” she added. “I think [we might share less] and make sure we’re protected as well as possible. Like I said, we’re a family and we’ll do this together.”

Kardashian’s friend Chrissy Teigen told Entertainment Tonight on Saturday that she “can’t even fathom” what her life would be like after such an experience. The model said she and Kardashian have been texting and that the star is doing “great.”
